    Today, I represented 2 tribal members in a revocation of gaming license
     
    Hearing. After about 4 hours, I was served with a "notice of debarment"
     
    By 3 security officers. I informed them I was in the middle of my 1st
    hearing
     
    & couldn't leave. I was told I would be escorted off the premises. The
    notice
     
    Says: "Violation of this order is a criminal offense and will subject the
    violator
     
    To arrest." I contemplated arrest, but figured under their justice I would
    lose
     
    At a later hearing.
     

     
    Ironically, I was suspended from the premises for 30 days for the same
    charges
     
    I was defending my clients for. So much BS.
     

     
    As I left in a casino cart, w/security, got to my car, they took the license
    #, make,
     
    Etc.
     

     
    I've never heard of such conduct to, in my opinion, remove an attorney from
     
    client representation. Its not over yet. One of my clients suffered a panic
    attack
     
    & the hearing officers gave her 5 minutes to compose. She left w/paramedics.
     

     
    If anybody wants a copy of my debarment notice email me & I'll send you a
    copy.
